About Acupuncture

Many people are hesitant when it comes to acupuncture, but it is an incredibly safe, PAINLESS, and effective way to improve overall health.

The holistic treatment originated more than 2,000 years ago, and it has proven effective in clinical trials to treat and prevent a number of medical conditions. According to Chinese medical theory, Qi is the vital energy which flows through a system of channels called meridians. Illness arises when the cyclical flow of Qi in the meridians become unbalanced or is blocked.

Acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body along the meridians to balance the body and relief pain.

Western research shows acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals produced within our bodies, but endorphines are 200 times more potent than morphine. Endorphins also play a big role in the functioning of the hormonal system. This is why acupuncture works well for back pain, arthristis, P.M.S and infertility. The substances released as a result of acupuncture not only relax the whole body, they regulate serotonin in the brain. This is why depression is often treated with acupuncture.
